Ras Moshe:

Although trained in earlier forms of "jazz", Ras' preferred mode of improvisation is in the later or "free" developments of the music,without relying on generic terms. At the age of 16 he started playing alto in roots reggae the early 90's he got tired of only playing "jazz" at home and "here and there".....he picked up the tenor and decided to pay homage to Coltrane, Albert Ayler, John Gilmore and his other favorites on a permanent basis. Without copying verbatim (or trying not to!) He definitely believes in the positive effect the new music will have on social and personal change. The music is a spiritual and social force. The music is indeed the voice of the people.

He formed The Music Now Unit in 1999 with Jackson Krall,Tor Yochai Snyder,Matt Lavelle,Kyoko Kitamura,Matt Heyner and Todd Nicholson. You can hear different editons/combinations of the band on the "Live Spirits" series on Utech records. His new band is The Transcendence Unit with Dave Ross,Matt Lavelle, Shayna Dulberger and Rashid Bakr. They just did a new release called "Transcendence" on kmb jazz. He has some ongoing musical relationships with Kyoko Kitamura and Dafna Naphtali who are in the forefront of electronic/vocal improvisations. He is the founder and organizer of The Music Now festivals. The festival series is still going strong after 7 years. He plays Tenor sax,sometimes Alto and the flute. 2007: Transcendence KMB Jazz/kmb007 Ion Storm with Marc Edwards Slipstream Time Travel 2006: Live Sprits3 Live Spirits4 The Spark Trio The Vampires Revenge with Dom Minasi 2005: Live Spirits1 Live Spirits2 2003: Into The Openness MusicNow 1 2002: Izititiz-With Our With Jazz(limited edition vinyl) Izititiz-Lucky Bird conduit creations 002 Schematic Jump Arts 004 Handling The Moment -The Matt Lavelle Quartet CIMP records 2001: The Blue Universe Quartet cosmic mechanic 001
